Fans of all things cute will definitely be no stranger to MT washi tape, hailing from Japan. With its seasonal catalogue, and endless selections of pretty patterns and prints, MT washi tape has long been a favourite for DIY craftsters (great for packaging and decorating your handmade wedding favours and guestbooks!) or simply, anyone wanting to brighten up their stationery stash. Definitely useful for making a boring stack of notes look more interesting (or for us over here at W&T, a whole list of to-dos look less painful!)

That’s why MT Expo Singapore, currently ongoing at the Ion Art Gallery, is such a dream come true. Take your pick from rows after rows of MT washi tape, including limited edition and Singapore-only designs no less! (Psst, the current batch of Singapore-only tapes has already sold out, but we heard from the staff at the MT Expo that the next batch has already hit the shelves as of noon today! You heard it here first!)

And as if having to mull over what designs to get is not enough, the MT Expo will have you digging for your wallet over their gacha machine — if you happen to get the lucky capsule with the red atari paper inside, you can exchange it for a not-for-sale limited edition tape at the cashier counter! Caution is definitely advised as the gacha machine is highly addictive. Don’t say we didn’t warn you first! Well, just so you know, it took us three tries before we got lucky 🙂

With the MT Expo’s central location, it is definitely a delightful pit-stop during lunch break, or a great detour before you head home after work.

The MT Expo is currently ongoing from 10:30am to 9:30pm daily, till 11 August 2013. The event also features twice-daily workshops (sign up early here to avoid disappointment) at S$35 per session.
